Winter weather and road conditions can effect the school day schedule. Most local television stations (ch. 4 / Komo, ch.5 /KING, ch. 7/ KIRO) as well as radio stations (KBRC/ AM 1430,KAPS/ AM 660, KRKO / AM 1380,KIRO / AM 710, KOMO AM 1000, KAFE / FM104.5) will broadcast school closures or delayed starts the night before or by early morning. MVSD office will also send out a Robo-Call to all families and staff by 5:30 am.


As the weather gets wetter, we have more need for a change from wet or muddy clothes.  Sweat pants in small sizes (5-8) are what we use the most.  This is a daily playground activity result for Kdg, 1st and 2nd grade students. 

Gently worn and clean sweat pants help keep our younger students in class and comfortable enough to focus on learning. Donations may be left at school office. Thank you!!


Evening meals are served at Laventure in the cafeteria Monday – Thursday from 3:30pm to 5:00pm. This is a ‘no cost’ program for people 18 years of age or younger.

Meals are not served on Fridays or through the weekend nor on school holidays or closures (like Winter Break). On Early Release dates for 6-8th grades (March 29), the evening meal will not be served. Summer meal programs vary.


This year Jefferson staff will be promoting the importance of school attendance. This is a goal shared district-wide.

Attendance is one strategy recognized by the Mount Vernon School Board to achieve a 100% graduation rate at M.V.H.S.! You will learn more about attendance as the year develops.
